This year ...
Man. What can I say?
I started this year with grandiose plans for writing. I wanted to write at least two new books (finishing up my road-trip romance series I started writing last year), edit at least two books, and gain at least one, if not two more contracts. Well. Where am I in all that?
I have written another book. But not either of the ones I had meant to. I wrote the one for the trilogy I'm doing with Heather Greer and Erin Howard, instead.
And I have gotten another contract! Yay!
But then, I sort of lost my momentum. Until Katie nudged me this week.
On a normal year, I would be leaving this afternoon to head to the KenTen Writers' Retreat. We'd all eat dinner together this evening--pulled pork sandwiches and laughter all around. Then, I'd spend two days mostly talking about writing and reading and perfecting craft and marketing, having my spirit lifted by being around others who understand what it's like to have stories pop into your head and not leave you alone until you write them down, and hanging out with Heather Greer and Erin Howard, filming a few more youtube videos between retreat sessions.
But this is not a normal year.
Today, I am thrilled to have my good friend Heather Greer with me, talking about her new book, Relentless Love. This is the third book in her series, and we're chatting about all of it. Read on.
Okay, Heather. Tell us. This book concludes the series you've been writing for the last few years. How does it feel to wrap up the story of these characters?
It’s bittersweet for sure. There are more stories in the pages. Erin and Paul have a story to tell, but I’m not sure I’m supposed to tell it for them. There is a new character and her son in this book that also have a great story, but I don’t know if I’ll be following up with that one either. But for Katie, I think this book gives her the ending she needs. I think readers will be satisfied with the outcome and happy for her even if they don’t know exactly where life takes her after the story ends.
This is a place for me to tell you about what I'm writing, talk about the process or where some of my ideas came from, or even have other authors come in and talk about their books.
